GOOD Party concerned by City of Cape Town cutting free electricity to struggling households

# The GOOD Party in the Western Cape says the City of Cape Town cutting the provision of free electricity to thousands of indigent households is shocking and concerning. The city’s budget adjustment, tabled yesterday and approved by the DA majority, lowered the qualifying threshold for free services from properties valued at less than 500-thousand-rand, to properties valued at less than 400-thousand-rand. The GOOD Party says these cuts will impact families living across the Cape Flats, besides those living in informal settlements who maintain serviceable electricity meters in their shacks.
